An Invitation To Discuss Standards in Public Schools: A Policy Statement of the Rural Challenge.
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v15 n1 p59-63 Spr 1999
The Annenberg Rural Challenge believes that high academic standards can help achieve excellence, but can also be exploited to serve other political purposes. Standards should originate in the community. The policy statement discusses three kinds of standards, the dangers of standards, and the relationship between high standards and educational equity. Legitimate concerns about standards are no excuse for mediocrity. (TD)
